Hi Julee et al,

I worked on it a bit more and made sure it works in every CSS transforms-supporting browser and is accessible in browsers that don’t support CSS transforms.

However, there is a small bug in Firefox [1] when thick borders are combined with transforms, which makes it look like this:


I’ve tried a lot, but can’t seem to come up with a solution. Do you think I should deploy regardless or does it look too bad?

Cheers,
Lea

So I think your banner is apropos. Highlighting the status is the most important feature. Colors are extra.

However, adding classes for different statuses is something I cannot do myself, so it might be worth adding it with the same color for every status at first, and making the change later.
